Compress the obj model and metadata file into .zip package and upload to

Zip file#1 & #2 into file#3 and upload it to

Click Create, select Third-party Model and click Photogrammetric Model.

Upon completion of the conversion, your context capture results can be viewed on the Internet without any restrictions. Besides, you could put the model on the [Planets] ( for more creation and application.


What to do when the zip archive is too large to upload, or the conversion process prompts "zip file error"?
A: You can use the 7zip or other tools to perform volume compression. Divide a large compression package into files of about 200 Mbyte each and then upload all these files to the project.

When the context capture model is uploaded for conversion, many cracks appear as the following figure. How to solve it?

A: This problem is caused by inconsistencies in the coordinate systems selected in steps B.1 and B.3. The coordinate systems selected in B.1 and B.3 must be the same to avoid such cracks.

How to assign the geographical coordinates?
A: Adding a metadata.xml file to the archive file with coordinate information description. Usually the metadata file is placed at the root of the archive directory and its file format is as below.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <ModelMetadata version="1"> <!--Spatial Reference System Only ENU coordinate system can be supported. The two numbers after the ENU are the latitude and precision of the ENU coordinate system origin.--> <SRS>ENU:22.64434,114.06046</SRS> <!--Origin in Spatial Reference System The origin coordinates of uploaded model in the ENU coordinate system --> <SRSOrigin>0,0,0</SRSOrigin> </ModelMetadata> After the context capture model is well uploaded and converted, when the .ab outcome is imported into the development platform, the model location is not accurate as expected. How to solve it?

A: You need to manually enter the center coordinates (SRSOrigin) of the xml into the "local translate" in the final_report.json file.


DJI PC Simulator and Windows Driver. (Note: they are official DJI Simulator installers, but DJI has removed those download links from their website)
Open DJI PC Simulator and click Display Simulator

Connect your aircraft to computer
Power on your aircraft with propellers detached.
Use a USB cable to connect your aircraft and computer.

The SN section in simulator should show the SN of your aircraft. If the SN is empty, you may need to reconnected the USB cable or reinstall the driver.

Start simulation
Enter the Latitude and Longitude near you, then click Start Simulation. Once connected, the button should be greyed out, latitude and longitude are shown in simulator.

In simulator, you can control your aircraft using your remote controller, DJI Go, Altizure and any other third-party DJI app, This will help you learn how to use these app without danger.

Try Altizure app
Connect your remote controller with Altizure app.
Find aircraft's location at simulated location, and start a new mission.


Here is DJI's guide on using the simulator.
Your aircraft takes photos in simulator, too. So you may need to delete these photos to free up spaced in SD card.
Scroll your mouse wheels to zoom in/out in simulator.
Right click the simulator, select setup, tick show trace, then you can see the flight path.
